Swallow Frame Pricing

As each frame is different, we tend to price each one individually. Each frame will have a solid silver head-badge and a hallmarked individual silver number plate. We also only use stainless steel bottle cages bosses and most other threaded braze-on bosses. Steel fork crowns and rear seat-stay bridges will have our Swallow bird engraved in them and solid top eyes either the bird or the word Swallow engraved, depending on the size or your choice.

To give you a guide the following do not include any stainless steel lugs or fork crowns but do include a quality if plain stainless steel drop-outs on 931, 953 and Xcr. Paint finish is one colour plain or metallic.  We also build in other Reynolds and Columbus tubing and will quote prices on request.

  • Reynolds 853 lugged frame with matching fork, from £1500
  • Reynolds 931 lugged frame with matching fork, from £2000
  • Reynolds 953 lugged frame with matching fork, from £2200
  • Columbus Xcr lugged frame with matching fork, from £2400

Any of the above can be supplied with a carbon fork instead of steel.

So they are starting prices, and then depending of whatever you choose in terms of other lugs or lug-less, fork crowns, bottom brackets, other types of braze-ons, polishing and paint schemes and finishes, we will prepare a detailed quote for you.
